Des Moines Center of Iowa Survey of Historic Sites

In 1983, the Des Moines Plan and Zoning Commission undertook a survey of historic sites in Des Moines with special assistance from Barbara Beving Long.  This file is a scan from that document that organizes the identified sites by historic context:

  • Transportation
  • Commerce
  • Industry
  • Social History – Immegration
  • Political and Social Change
  • Humanities

Many of the sites are related to multiple contexts.
